Man United West Ham Solskjaer

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reacted to his side’s 1-0 victory over West Ham United on Sunday night.

It took a own goal from Craig Dawson to secure the win for Solkjaer’s men who failed to find the back of the net despite hitting the woodwork twice.

Reacting after the game, Solskjaer was delighted that his side took the three points with a clean sheet in what happened to be their first league double over the Hammers since the 2013/14 season.

“As expected, they are always going to make it hard for you. We could have been more comfortable towards the end as we had a few decent chances to finish it off – we like to make it hard for ourselves.

“We created massive opportunities but the final pass or shot wasn’t good enough. It could have been two or three easily – but then it could have ended up in our net at the end as they are a threat.
